The state of Michigan is considering a Make My Day law in which residents can use deadly force against an intruder without facing criminal or civil prosecution. Currently, victims of crime in Michigan must retreat from an attack before responding.

Carolynn Jarvis is executive director of the Michigan Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence and opposes this bill. She cites shooting a bicycle thief as an "extreme measure" that might occur as a result of the proposed law.

I own a firearm but I'm not going to off some punk just because he's stealing my bike. Nevertheless, I think extremism in the defense of cycling liberty is no vice.
